Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am an inspired 3rd grade teacher in Oakland who motivates students to achieve academic excellence and become positive contributors to their school and community.

I have over 3 years of full-time teaching experience educating children in K-3 in Oakland, and over 7 years collectively in K-12 education in the U.S. and overseas. I have a credential from Holy Names University in the Multiple Subject Teaching Credential program in Urban Education (final semester), and hold a Bachelor’s degree in English from Georgetown University (1987). My experience as an educator and a credential student have prepared me to be an invaluable, enthusiastic and effective tutor for all ages.

English

I taught 8th grade students at Making Waves Academy summer school in Richmond. We read the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird and studied grammar and language arts skills, using various graphic aids and comprehension techniques.

ESL/ESOL

I served as an ELD/ESL INSTRUCTOR - (1997 - 1998) for The British Council in Jerusalem, Israel, providing ESL Classroom Instruction to a group of 15-20 Israeli elementary students. Developed and implemented effective lesson plans and taught from British Council curriculum. Fostered excitement for learning through student dramatization, singing and group activities. Increased reading, writing and comprehension levels, effectively managed student behavior and encouraged parent participation.

Phonics

I have over 2 years experiences as a kindergarten teacher, providing phonics instruction to first year elementary school students based upon California Content and Common Core standards. I taught from the Open Court Language Arts program, which takes students from letter to sound recognition and then blending sounds to words. By years end, students engaged in an abundance of phonics activities, which includes reading word families and recognizing common phonics buildings; they could also read and write CVC words and up to 100 sight words. Consistently, more than 80% of my students were at or above grade level by year’s end.

Reading

My experience as kindergarten teacher, has helped prepare me to teach reading to EL 3rd graders. Learning to teach phonics, phonology, morphology has assisted me greatly in 3rd grade instruction.
